Thanksgiving Tablescape – How To

posted on November 15th, 2018 by Dani Fogel

Your tablescape will be the first thing your family and friends notice when they sit down for dinner, and we’re here to help make it feel like less of a burden. From locally-grown succulents and florals to simple and extra soft linens to plateware with pizazz to candles to really set the mood, we are fully stocked in our floral and housewares department with everything you need to achieve that picture-perfect table you saw on Pinterest. Go Green with Festive Florals The foliage on your holiday dinner table should be fresh and natural, but not overbearing to the point where guests will be confused as to what’s a garnish and what’s decor. Start with succulents, greenery, and arrangements from Bristol Farms’ floral department. All of our sustainable greens are grown in the wild and sourced from farm to vase from Continental Floral Greens. Locally-grown poinsettias or a noble fir wreath are just some of what you can expect to find. Small twigs or branches can be tucked away… Read More

All Hallow’s Eve Checklist

posted on October 23rd, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

Can you believe Halloween is just one week away? October has already come and {almost} gone. What do your Halloween plans entail? For many of us, the actual night, which falls on a not-so-fun Wednesday this year, will consist of trick-or-treating with our little ones all dressed up in costumes of their choosing. An evening with way too much candy and possible battles to relinquish said candy, it's just one of those holidays the kids can't resist. We have bags upon bags of candy just waiting for you too. Because unless you want to turn off your lights...and maybe the doorbell ringer too, the kids will be a-coming for their treats. And while candy is a Halloween must, there are tons of other fun items to consider too. Full Disclosure: We do not have your scary and elaborate haunted decor or your costumes. But we do have loads of candy, Autumn ciders and beer, party ware, decor,  and of course, every kind of pumpkin you could ever want. Here's Your Halloween… Read More
